I am a Professor of Physics (Professor Catedrático) at the Department of Physics of Instituto Superior Técnico, Lisbon, Portugal. I am the coordinator of the Scientific Area of Plasma Physics, Lasers and Nuclear Fusion at the Department of Physics.

My research is performed at the Group of Lasers and Plasmas, also known as GoLP, where I lead the epp team. I am the scientific coordinator of the Group of Lasers and Plasmas.
At GoLP we are all committed to continuously raising the bar.

I serve on the Editorial Board of an awesome outlet for papers in Plasma Physics: Journal of Plasma Physics (Cambridge University Press)

I am also the President of the Scientific Council of IST (since January 2013).

I have a broad range of scientific interests that can be closely connected with the interaction of intense fields with plasmas (Extreme Plasma Physics | High Energy Density Science | High Field Science | Ultra Fast Science). My main focus is on the collective/nonlinear processes underlying these interactions, and their relevance in plasma-based accelerators and secondary sources, relativistic (plasma) astrophysics of compact objects, magnetogenesis, QED processes, and fundamental plasma physics.
